28th annual MatzoBall is coming to Miami


On Dec. 24, while much of the world is observing Christmas Eve, Jewish singles will be mixing and mingling at an annual party popularly known as The MatzoBall, a social event coordinated by The Society of Young Jewish Professionals.

The event was birthed in 1987 at a local bar near Boston University. Bartender Andy Rudnick created the event to give Jewish singles, who usually don't have a place to go on Christmas Eve, a place to party. Since then, the MatzoBall has grown from a local college town bar to numerous cities throughout the country, connecting 50,000 young Jewish singles together.

The MatzoBall has become about more than just partying. It has morphed into a casual matchmaking service. With more than 1,000 marriages, there are reports of couples that met 25 years ago, whose 21-year-old children are attending this year for the first time.

For Orlando area Jewish singles, the closest MatzoBall will be held in Miami at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami. For more information about cost, reservations or to book a VIP package, visit http://www.matzoball.org.
